Currently VU offers two types of classes: year-round classes and term-based classes. Year-round classes run continuously throughout the year, never require registration, and often combine a community-building component (e.g., sharing and prayer) together with a study or lesson of some type. Folks are welcome to join these anytime (just drop in!). Term-based classes require registration and typically run for 9-12 weeks during the fall and spring. These are more squarely focused on instruction, though the form of that instruction may vary. In addition to these classes, VU also offers periodic special seminars throughout the year.
